Dear Families,
We hope you’ve shared a happy, safe weekend.
Please be advised, unfortunately all Dance and Drama and P7 Dance Fest after school classes will NOT run this week.
Classes will run from 14th – 18th June as normal for the final session of the term.
P6 Dance Fest will run as normal this week Tuesday 8th June with Miss Howat.
All Sport activities will also run as normal. 
We thank you for you support and understanding at this time and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Mr Swan

Please bring your devices to school

  Scottish Government Devices  

We need to do an inventory of all of our devices that were issued during remote learning.  If your child was given a device (an iPad or a laptop) can you please return it to the school by Friday 18th June so that we can carry out the inventory.  The device should be returned with its charger and bag (if you were provided with one).

Please do not worry – the device will be returned to your child in August as the device has been allocated to them, not the school.

If it would benefit your child to have their device during the summer period then please email and this can be arranged.

P7 pupils will not have their device returned to them as their secondary school will issue them with a new device when they start S1.

Thank you for your cooperation.
